Schenn has looked exactly like I was hoping him to be, honestly.
He's strong on the puck for a 20year old kid, he looked good on the PP whenever he got the chance, he was very good on the PK and he's probably our best face-off man righ-away and his skating wasn't an issue (he even flew by a defender in one of the games against Toronto, making a nice pass to ...Read (I guess) who couldn't tuck it in.
Schenn hater? I was over the moon that we got Schenn. I was sure he would make the roster with relative ease. I know stats aren't everything but as someone who followed Schenn since his days in the WHL, the staff is wasting his talents by using him as a defensive center. Sure it's clear that his defense is improving but it's not allowing him to get his offensive game going which IN MY OPINION, really hurts his chances since Read and Couturier are centers with smaller cap hits (although it looks like Read has switched to wing) I would LOVE if he made it and started to impress me like when I was watching the worlds, but so far I've been disappointed at how average he has been.
